A political talk show produced in Sacramento will now be seen on several stations throughout California.

“Inside California Politics,” produced by Sacramento Fox affiliate KTXL (Channel 40), began syndicating to five other Nexstar-owned local television stations in the Golden State.

The announcement was made on Facebook over the weekend by Malcolm Hoyle, a news producer at KTXL, and confirmed in a separate post by the station’s news director Monika Diaz.

Hosted by KTXL news anchor Nikki Laurenzo, the weekend show takes a deep dive into policy matters through California through interviews with lawmakers and politically-influential individuals. The show began airing on KTXL earlier this year.

Starting Sunday, the show is now syndicated to five other Nexstar-owned stations in California, including outlets in the state’s four biggest TV markets. The full schedule appears below:

  • KSWB (Channel 69), San Diego: 5:30 a.m.
  • KRON (Channel 4), San Francisco: 6:30 a.m.
  • KTXL (Channel 40), Sacramento: 7:30 a.m.
  • KGET (Chanel 17), Bakersfield: 9:00 a.m.
  • KTLA (Channel 5), Los Angeles: 4:00 p.m.
  • KGPE (Channel 47), Fresno: 6:30 p.m.

The show’s airing on those six stations puts it in front of a possible audience of 22 million households, Hoyle wrote on Facebook.

Clips from the show are available on KTXL’s website immediately after the show airs on Sunday.
